"Being present is the actor’s job. Being aware of your body, in space, and the emotions that are occurring inside, is essential. Well, quite simply, the more aware one is—of yourself, of your surroundings, of other people—the more likely you are to respond truthfully."- Sandra Oh, introducing Mindful's Getting Started series in the April issue, on newsstands soon.
Quote on abuse: Survivors of any and all abuse become very good at anticipating moods of others, looks, actions, all of it in an effort to survive. Believing that if we can be agreeable, be compliant and loving, do things how they want, that we will be safe. This becomes our way of live." - Darlene Ouimet. www.HealthyPlace.com
Dont let the fact that its done with disney characters sway you. The message here is amazing. I feel like a lot of people dont understand that feminism isnt about being more manly or looking down on being a softer or girly person. Its about having the right to be equal and being able to choose the kind of person you want to be not told that because you are female you have to be a certain way.
Treat others as you want to be treated, not if they deserve to be treated the way they've done to you. You are representing who you are, not how to get even. Be the bigger person. Be the mature one. But sometimes things just have to be done, and people need to be reminded sometimes of their own medicine... and if it's from the same person who thought like above in the previous sentence, it will be noticed. It's not about getting even, it's about something bigger.
